“Willow look! A shoe sale.” Buffy grabs Willow’s arm. “Come on!”
Willow sighs but follows her friend into the store.
The girls try on shoe after shoe. Some look nice, some are just plain weird.
“How about this one?” Buffy holds up a black high-heel with lots of straps.
“Shouldn’t you look for something more… stable? Isn’t it hard to fight in high heels?” Willow winces when Buffy pouts. “It looks nice! Do you have a dress for it?”
An hour later they have tried on nearly every shoe in the store when Buffy spots something in the back. It’s a simple shoe. The heel is neither too high nor too low. It has only a simple buckle, but what has caught her eye is the material. It looks like glass.
“Hey Wills? Look at this.” She holds up the strange shoe. “What do you think of this?”
“I’m not sure. Try it on?”
Buffy sits down in a chair for the nth time today. However the shoe doesn’t fit and there’s no other sizes to try.
“Too bad it doesn’t fit.” Buffy hands it over to Willow. “Your turn.”
Willow takes Buffy’s place in the chair and puts on the shoe.
“It’s too big for me. Besides it’s see-through. I don’t want people staring at my feet like that.”
The two girls collect their bags, pay for their shoes and leave the store. Behind them the clerk crosses off two names on a long list containing a royal crest.
